In a mad rage, a kosher butcher named Tex (Woody Allen) murders his adulterous wife (Sharon Stone), chops her body into pieces, and buries them in a Mexican desert. In time, the dead woman's hand surfaces and an old blind woman trips over it. The fall remarkably restores her sight, leading the sleepy village townsfolk to believe the "Hand of the Madonna" has blessed them. With the encouragement of the opportunist mayor (Cheech Marin), down-on-their-luck folks from near and far come to the local church to get a glimpse of the wish-granting appendage. Meanwhile, the town's fallen priest (David Schwimmer) and his girlfriend --who happens to also be a prostitute--set forth on a quest to uncover the hand's true origins. Meanwhile, Tex attempts to steal the hand before the local sheriff Kiefer Sutherland) discovers his crime. From the director of LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE and A WALK IN THE CLOUDS, Alfonso Arau, and featuring numerous celebrity cameos.
